I don’t know about anyone else in this neck of the woods, but I’m almost ready to do a rain dance. Everything is just parched and my rain gauge has recorded only .82 inches of rain since June.

I had a lovely call from one of our Eagle readers in Seattle last week, Joanne Morrison. In that conversation, she asked how my brother was doing since he came here from Minnesota, and I told her he is doing great and loves it here. She then informed me that I had made a mistake in my column dated August 16. Her nephew and niece had an anniversary that week and I had spelled their name wrong. So, my apologies to Bill and Krista Bocker and I hope they had an amazing, special day. And I thank Mrs. Morrison not only for pointing out my mistake, and also for reading our little hometown paper.
Labor Day in the United States is a federal holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country. It is also celebrated as the last weekend of summer by many in the United States. That said, I hope everyone has a safe and sane weekend, full of family fun.
